Drew Brees Reveals He Only Felt Good For This One Game Last Season...

Drew Brees did not have the healthiest of seasons in his final year with the Saints. On Wednesday, he revealed to reporters at a charity golf tournament that he only felt at peak performance for one game last season...
quote:

“I’ll be perfectly honest with you. I only felt really good in one game [Week 4 at Detroit], from the perspective I had all the tools in my toolbox,” Brees said, via Jeff Duncan of The Athletic. “I had a lot of limitations throughout the season as to what I could and couldn’t do. And I recognized that. And that’s really hard for a competitor. It’s really hard to know what you should be able to do, and yet you can’t, because of various injuries or things that are taking place with your body. Some of those things are just kind of freak things. You tear a plantar fascia. You get damage in your shoulder. You get broken ribs, right? A punctured lung. I had this abdominal thing that I was dealing with (for) pretty much most of the season.

“As a QB everything you do is rotation. And when you can’t rotate the way that you want, you all of a sudden begin to accommodate. Everything for you kind of narrows. I cant make that throw. I cant make that throw. I can’t make that throw. So what’s now in my toolbox? It’s harder to play the game that way. It is. And yet you’ve got to find a way to still get it done. And I felt like we did that. But it was difficult.”

And he was our best option? I'm all about him earning the respect but not promising prognosis with Winston & Hill

Tough to feel good when you have calloused knees and a gelatinous spine.

Don't for get about pasting a criminal's name on your helmet and thinking it's the right thing to do! His Grandfathers must be really proud of him?

19/25 246 2 Tds 1 INT If that was the best he felt, he definitely wasn't the same QB he'd been in the past. I'm gonna miss prime brees.
